Another CN freight train has derailed in New Brunswick, the second to run off the tracks in the province this month.
   
Local authorities say at least three cars derailed late Sunday night in the Edmunston-area parish of Saint-Basile in northwestern New Brunswick.
   
The cars are lying on their side in a ditch, and one of them may contain propane, but officials at the scene say there's no indication that it's leaking.
   
Edmunston Fire Services spokesman Peter Arel said crews from several municipalities responded to the emergency and were closely monitoring the situation, however, no evacuation order had been issued.
   
There's no indication yet what may have caused the wreck.
   
On January 7, a CN freight hauling crude oil derailed near Plaster Rock, New Brunswick sparking a fire that burned for several days.
